The great folks at WildRescue, Inc./Rabbit Rescue have important news about squirrel-fall season. Here is what to do and what not to do:

1. Squirrel has fallen from its nest - what do I do?
ANSWER: put the baby in a small box lined with something soft up on a chair or table directly underneath the tree it fell out of. Mom should come down and retrieve it in a short amount of time. NEVER wait more than 4 hours.
2. There are babies on the ground but it’s been over 4 hours and mom hasn’t come to ge them.
ANSWER: please gather them up into a shoebox lined with a T-shirt and bring them inside your garage so that the ambient temperature stays the same. Neonate squirrels cannot thermoregulate and need help staying warm. Please call the DFW Wildlife Hotline at (972) 234-9453.
3. There are baby squirrels on the ground and they are covered in ants! What do I do?
ANSWER: IMMEDIATELY brush off the ants and get the babies put into a shoebox lined with a T-shirt and put in your garage until you have found a Rehabber to take them to.
4. There are babies on the ground and I see mom but she isn’t coming down to get them.
ANSWER: gather all of the babies into a shoebox lined with a T-shirt and put them up on a chair or table directly under the tree that they fell out of and go back inside. In all likelihood mom is desperate to retrieve her babies but there is too much commotion going on. Give her space and time please.
5. I found some babies can I feed them? ANSWER: NO!!! Please do not attempt to feed baby anything unless you are under direct supervision from a wildlife rehabilitator.

Mom does not abandon her babies. She has nest A, B and C ready to go should she deem the current nest uninhabitable now. You need to give her time to move them. Obviously if it is over 4 hours and there is no sign of her then a Rehabber needs to be contacted.

Because of the heat many baby things will be falling right now. Please be kind and thoughtful in how you approach any situation. Their lives will depend on how you responsibly respond to the situation. Your dog or cat need to be constrained so that other lives can survive.

It is a myth that if you touch an animal or bird that the mother will abandon them. But it is always a very good idea to wear gloves when handling any form of wildlife.

Please call the DFW Wildlife Hotline at (972) 234-9453

Blonde squirrel

So I had heard rumors… and then today I could not believe I was witness: crossing Cedar street, a white, sometimes called blonde, squirrel. Just to note: I don’t favor “tree rats”, but it was exciting to see.

Downtown residences, not pressured by formal gardens and more conservative on waters, usually allow wild dandelion to feed the bees and even harvest young leaves for salads, along with nature’s other beneficial plants.

No visual,
which is normal this time of year when you step out onto your porch and hear the band practice at the nearby High School. In this time where nothing is normal, and knowing even band practice probably has different protocols, the sound gives a moment of hope and moving forward.

It is common practice to tear down old tin buildings and Cedar Hill has set itself apart in loving this old treasure. It has many stories in the generations that have used it. -And of course everyone loves the fading murals. What will it be for the coming generation?

Our chamber is beyond the norm as they have numerous resources, educational opportunities, and they advocate for Cedar Hill well beyond our borders into North Texas. And if you need to just talk one on one to decide how to get involved, they are very personable.

Neighborhood share- in case you have not seen, Mr Covington is teacher of the year (Waxahachie)- Congratulations! Also worth noting here is the Covington’s practice a form of xeriscaping that limits turf and waste (water and labor) encouraging more foliage of flowers, herbal, or food.

Babe’s Chicken has created quite a system
Downtown for pick up of a good home style meal, during this time. They are also opened for seating, or if your in walking distance you can walk up and order to go.
Babe’s sits in the middle of our square, a building that was once City Hall and held the fire Department, and someone said the beginning library too!
